Innovating to zero! | Bill Gates

I’m going to talk today about energy and climate. And that might seem a bit surprising, because my full-time work at the foundation is mostly about vaccines and seeds, about the things that we need to invent and deliver to help the poorest two billion live better lives. But energy and climate are extremely important …

How This Rare Natural Fission Reactor Could Solve Our Nuclear Waste Problem

How This Rare Natural Fission Reactor Could Solve Our Nuclear Waste Problem

Two billion years ago, the earth’s geology came together to spontaneously and naturally form what was essentially a nuclear fission reactor. It operated stably for about a million years, and its radioactive waste has been safely contained–again, totally naturally–for millions of years since. Surely we can learn from this, right? And also this DEFINITELY sounds …
